average, there are nine polls included in this. 48.9% for president obama. 46.6% for romney. it seems almost every day there is something new out of ohio. what are you seeing on the ground there? >> i like north carolina. the candidates have been in ohio so much they literally have become pests. they will be here through the weekend. obama will be here monday in columbus with jay-z and bruce springstein. they are pulling out all the stops. what i see on the ground is a close race. i saw a poll today i trust that has dead even. the candidates now are in posture of going through the bases. because they are only about 2% of the voters here who are undecided. p there are hundreds of volunteers doing that. i expect we'll see another 2% election here. if romney loses the presidency because he loses ohio by 2%. he will wake up every day for the rest of his life regretting that he did not choose senator rob portman of ohio as his running mate. he will also regret the editorial entitled "let driz go bankrupt." if obama loses by 2% for a simple reason. the magic is gone. after the drudgery of f
obama or mitt romney? would you rather have mitt-mentum or falling away as barack obama. the polls are showing that mitt is going ahead in ohio, rasmussen shows he's the most reliable guy. the other pole polls that show mitt mind are sampled in favor of democrats. but gallup's overall national poll, early voting, mitt's ahead by 7 and 6 points respectively. if you have a national margin that great. ohio will be swept through. ohio is a major republican state. can you thinkham pointed out, the only time it went for a democrat is when you had a lacklasture republican presidential candidate, which we do not have this time. romney is strong, joe. >> you know, sean -- wait. david, let's look at the reality. let's look at where they have been. yesterday, romney spends all day on three stops in florida, a state that should be a done deal. by the way -- and then obama spends all day today in wisconsin, a state he would have thought would have been locked down by now. just their two schedules alone show you -- you know, how tight this is and that they are both trying to lock down states lik

that bill clinton carried in '96 and that president obama carried. >> if that poll is accurate, romney will win florida for sure, if he's going to carry i-4 by that big a margin. most indications are that he's going to win the state. however, you have to point out, the obama campaign says they're competing in all the battleground states, and they are. the president's one event today is in florida with bill clinton, 10:00 this morning. >> going to be right in the middle of the i-4 corridor. >> right in the middle. they're competing there. they're not giving up. they're using their most precious asset today, one obama visit with bill clinton to go to florida. so they're not giving up, but there's no question romney has an edge there right now. >> you usually have, mika, north florida against south florida and central florida being what makes a difference. the south florida poll out of miami-dade shows the president -- >> largest county in the state, 52%-43%. >> that's not a surprise. i will tell you, this next poll, though, is a surprise. >> all right. let's go to virginia. the latest "w
with the national average, and here's a look at the real clear politics polling average showing president obama up three points in michigan. bill ballenger is back with us now to talk about what's going on in michigan. so, bill, how do these polls compare to what we've seen over the last couple weeks? >> they're tighter. mitt romney has pulled within shouting distance of the president. this is very much like 2004, john kerry led bush by about this margin, about 3% about a week out, and john kerry actually ended up winning michigan by about that margin, but the bush campaign had kerry so worried that he came in to michigan on sunday before the election to campaign. the difference this time around is neither candidate has come to michigan personally since early summer. jenna: and, bill, that was something you brought up to us a couple weeks ago. you said, listen, it's very important that both candidates get on the ground in michigan, and neither have. what do you make of that? >> well, i don't think obama has felt he needs to get here. i think the obama campaign has been pretty confident they alread
at the polls it's been ve steady t point advantage. >> uh-huh. >> in the state for obama. and one of the oddities of the race so far is that the national numbers probably a slight romney favorite right now, the state numbers like ohio, and obama favored. and i don't know too many experienced political hands who expect that to continue, that you get at this junction between the national numbers and some of these swing state numbers. usually they come together. it's possible that if say romney gets a plurality or a majority of 50.6, it's possible to see him losin the electoral college. if he's up over 51 or 52, it's hard to reconcile a two or three point win with an electoral loss. numbers have got to be pretty close. >> because the two are more likely to go in tandem is what you are saying. >> yeah, it's a crazy system. and david and i can have that debate. the electoral college is -- >> we can talk about that next. >> yes, in the off season. but let's understand this. there is a republican advantage in ohio. ohio is more republican than the nation. and internally, this one democra
much smaller gains. mr. obama has consist enly lead in the polls here and still holds an average of a 2 to 3 point lead. with the resurgence of the auto industry, new stealle production and the promise of large natural gas reserves, you can sense the optimism here in northeast ohio. but a big question w is whether demoatic strongholds like youngstown will give mr. obama enough margin to carryde the state and stay in the white house. mr. obama's popularity here is maintained by strong support frome autoworkers like union president green. >> in march everything almost came to a halt, right. the contractors we had in the plant were backing off. there were helicopters flying over our plant taking inventory, people waing through our plint with clipboards taking inventory. they were going tot liquidate our facility. that's a fact.ou so mitt romney can air brush this all i wants. that's what was happening at the time. the fact that president obama stood up and said i'm going take a bet on the american workers and we're going to invest in this when it wasn't a popular thing to do, absolutely h

polls, it looks like president obama is headed for a victory in the electoral college. it may be that the hurricane, the big storm is the october surprise that could swing the election either way. but president obama is tracking ahead of mitt romney in many of the important swing states and the big question is, does president obama stop campaigning because will he take a big political hit if he starts doing some of that? and mitt romney has to worry about going into any of the the other states that will make him look too political for campaigning in the middle of the storm. that's the big question na we're facing right now. but right now president obama is ahead in the state whereas mitt romney is ahead nationally. >> geraldo: erin, quickly, i've got 30 seconds, florida has romney over obama by 1 1/2, more or less. virginia has romney obama tied. ohio has obama over romney 48 funny 2 to 46.3, wisconsin has obama over romney by 2.3 percentage points so ladies and gentlemen, erin says that the governor is on track to win the popular vote, but as of right now, the president look
